When it’s time to replace your roof, there´s a lot to consider. Many homeowners are looking for a Metal Roof system that provides long lasting durability and a beautiful appearance. Metal Roofs have become the choice for the consumer when looking for replacement of an old roof or even new construction. In 2002 the nation experienced the worst battle against wild land fires. With this heightened alert of fire and drought the need to protect our homes in areas of extreme fire danger is more important than ever .
Metal reflects 70% of the sun´s energy. This minimizes heat retention and as a result less heat is transferred into the building’s structure. Further, 1985 research by the Florida Solar Energy Center showed that metal experienced a 34% less heat gain than asphalt shingles. Many customers report a reduction in energy costs during summer and winter months. Metal roofs can be installed over an existing roof, which creates even more insulation from temperature extremes.
